I’ve already started the preemptive cringing for the “New year, new me!” posts that are about to blow up social media. However after thinking it over, what’s so wrong with that really? Yeah it’s a little cliche to join the gym, start a diet or quit a habit, but these big changes are usually a shock to the system and hard to keep up with. So why not plan to make some small improvements instead, as little things can add up to a big difference over time.
It’s pretty incredible how much blogging has helped me. It has without a doubt, completely changed my mental approach to life and bouldering, to the point were others have also noticed. Obviously there are still bad days when I want to hide, eat and sleep, but they are much fewer and far between. I can’t think of a better way to start the New Year than by thanking you, yes you! Whether you’ve liked a Facebook post, Instagram picture, or visited this blog, you’ve made a positive difference to my day at that point in time, and I can’t begin to explain how it feels to have possibly done the same for others.
So my New Year’s resolution is to not really make a resolution, but instead keep doing what I’m doing. I know that there are a few things I can improve to make myself a better human and climber, so I’ll be working on those.
Thank you and I hope 2016 is full of everything you wish for.
